German punters back Cersei in ‘Who Will Sit on the Iron Throne at end of Series 7’ market ahead of opening episode
Betway have suspended betting on their ‘Who Will Sit on the Iron Throne at end of Series 7’ market after a series of telling wagers on Cersei Lannister to hold the throne were placed.
Reported to be mainly German accounts, the leading online bookmaker saw a wave of money come in for the Queen Regent of the Seven Kingdoms and the market is now closed ahead of Sunday’s opening show of the new series.
Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “When punters latch on to one of these TV markets and the money starts flooding in then you have to take action.
“It appears somebody, possibly in Germany, is in the know and we’ve had to suspend betting on Cersei Lannister in our ‘Who Will Sit on the Iron Throne at end of Series’ market.”
In other Series 7 markets, the leading online bookmaker is odds-on at 1/3 for the cumulative number of viewers to eclipse Series 6, while it’s 7/2 for Jon Snow to be killed off.
